The Wellbeing service can help you to find local wellbeing information and services. From this website to the teams in your local area, you can get advice and support on how to make small changes to improve your health and wellbeing, including how to stop smoking, how to become more active or how to make your meals healthier.
Mid Sussex Wellbeing is a friendly and impartial service which comes from your local authority and other partners, the majority of our services are completely free to users. As well as using this new website, you can find out more about local activities and support services by talking to our friendly Wellbeing Advisors over the phone or in person.
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then this website and the Wellbeing service can help you.
We can offer advice and information and we will also put you in touch with more specialist support if it’s needed.
There are three simple steps to get started:
1) Get ready
Think about the changes you would like to make to lead a healthier lifestyle
2) Get set
Check out this website for local activities or support that can help you achieve your goals. Phone or email for a one-to-one chat with a Wellbeing Advisor, or to make an appointment if you need that extra bit of help.
We will give you advice and support on how to take control and build small changes into your life. We understand how hard it can be, but we can help to make it easier.
You can find more detailed information about Wellbeing services in different areas of West Sussex by selecting the location you are interested in on the Your local Wellbeing service page.

Prevention Assessment Teams are made up of health advisers (nurses), social care staff and people from the voluntary sector. They aim to help people living locally to stay healthy and remain independent. Normally, they work with people who do not receive services from specialist health care teams or social care services.
They can work with you or your carer and undertake an holistic assessment of your household. This will help identify what support might be required to keep you or your carer independent and prevent or delay the need for more intensive services. They will help you get to the right services for you.
Contact your local Prevention Assessment Team if you think they may be able to help. You can also complete our Wellbeing Self Assessment tool to help find the right service for you.
The NHS Choices website has lots of information about specific health conditions and services. You can also search for health services near you, such as GPs (family doctors), dentists, pharmacies and NHS walk-in centres. Visit NHS Choices.
If you have been on NHS Choices and can’t find the right information, try your local Healthwatch, which provides advice, information and help on health services available in our local area.
For information about adults’ and children’s social care services visit the West Sussex County Council website.
